Dansformation Update

Denis was delighted with the response to his call for support for Daniel.  He mentioned that Caitriona (otherwise known as the Inspector of Weights and Measures) was already seeing results.  Keep up the cheerleading, everyone.

Of course, this type of endeavour is fraught with difficulty and temptations.  Everywhere you turn, people are saying “sure a biscuit would do you no harm….” or “you’ll have a few chips with that, go on, go on…”.  Beware, Daniel, underminers are everywhere.  Look at this one, for example – Jess the Temptress….

Stay strong, Daniel.  You have your supporters.  B.A. Richardson, says she’ll lamp anyone who gets in the way of your goals.   B.A. Baracus wouldn’t stand a chance.

It was also great to see that Daniel recognises everyone could do with a little help in defying the march of time.  He’s slathering on the Ageless Beauty Lotion (“designed for the sensitive man”) to complement his reductional measurement programme. 

What an inspiration to his followers everywhere.  (Does anyone in Barnsley read this stuff – I wonder what they’d think?). I reckon there’s a media career in the offing here.  Maybe a column in The Carrigdhoun – “Ask Daniel – How to Improve your Life, the Barnsley Way”.  Siobhan might get him in there – she’s huge in all those media circles..  #GODANIEL

Operation Dansformation

Denis Condon has been in touch to say he’s disappointed with the level of support being offered to our resettled Barnsleyian, Daniel Swagrzyk.

Daniel – Denis says – has been given his New Year’s resolution by Cáitriona  made a decision to alter his body shape in a reductional fashion. Despite his acknowledged ability to walk on water, even Daniel can be improved, apparently.  Denis mentioned “two stone, or he’s out – that’s what I heard” – but surely that can’t be true.

Denis is putting the call out for more vocal exhortations to support Daniel in his efforts.  He suggests encouraging Daniel with shouts of “Get on dat bike and up dat hill, ya fecker” whenever we meet him.

Rest assured, Daniel, your fellow Myrtlevillians are right behind you in your campaign.  With Denis reminding us daily, we’ll be shouting you on and looking forward to the day when we can have a massive BBQ – with cakes to celebrate your success.  Just a salad for you though, Denis said.

Grab a “bargain” over on eBay

It’s that time of year when eBay handles the disposal of mountains of unwanted crap handed over as Christmas gifts.  To highlight one listing – the “seller” is offering to pay anyone who’ll come and take away an item that mysteriously landed in his wife’s present pile.  It’s hideous – even the dog isn’t happy to have it as bedding.  What a load of goat shite.

Goats?????  Get it off me!!!

Goats????? Get it off me!!!  Call the CSPCA!!!

De Video – 2017

If I’m asked – and I often am – why so many people have taken to swimming in Myrtleville I say, “Siobhan Russell”.  In this digital age, having an in-beach photographer who captures the fun of sea swimming is fantastic.  People trying to decide if they should take the plunge and try getting in to the sea can browse online and clearly see others who may look a bit mad (we do), but who definitely are having fun.  Siobhan captures that and it’s easy to forget how lucky we are to have her.

Here’s this year’s labour of love showing us all in all our glory!  Have a coffee and a relax.  It’s worth it.   Thanks, Siobhan.  You are a star.

Dawn & Mabon

This man was on the beach with a drone last week and captured a lovely sunrise. 

It’s a timely reminder for the world famous annual (for the second time) Myrtleville Mabon Dawn Swim at 6.30am on Friday, September 22nd.  

What’s Mabon?  The Autumn Equinox.

Who can forget the massive crowds attending last year’s inaugural event?

Massive crowd of six (plus the photographer) at last year’s swim.  Still, the photo is now famous on the window of Centra Crosshaven.

Start practicing setting your alarm clocks.  This year is going to be huge.
